Island of Birds. Uunisaari is a short film by Emma de Carvalho. It explores how birdlife on the Uunisaari island in Helsinki has been affected by climate change. Through a conversation with her grandmother, as well as her own video footage and research, Emma explores what memory, evidence, crimes, and archives mean on this island. The accompanying text opens up Emma’s reflections about the process of creating the film.
Emma’s project was created in conjunction with the IHME Helsinki Commission 2022 course entitled Learning from Doubt. This project will be showcased in November. Follow this blog for more updates.
